(light engineering and applied photonics)
The research focus of LEAP Lab (Light Engineering and Applied Photonics) is interdisciplinary in nature, primarily in the field of Medical Optics. It addresses the challenges in biomedical diagnostic devices, including microscopic and macroscopic investigations of cells and tissues. The current emphasis of the group is on developing novel optical tools for intraoperative cancer margin assessment, intraoral cancer probe, and transvaginal imaging probe.
Optical Techniques for Breast Cancer Margin Assessment
Multispectral Intraoral Cancer Probe for Oral Cancer Diagnosis
Transvaginal Imaging Probe for Cervical Cancer Diagnosis
